DESIGNER MARIA KILLAM GIVES HER SISTER’S PATIO A BEACHY BLUE MAKEOVER – As seen in Canadian Home Trends Magazine Cottage & Outdoor Living Special Edition 2021!
A new pavilion helps to block the western sun that shines directly on this area in the summer and nicely covers some new cedars that had been planted to replace old ones right behind it.
Arrange your outdoor furniture to best fit your patio. From the old dining set, we kept the patio umbrella and chairs because they were still in good condition. The rectangular parsons table with two wicker chairs create a much more inviting/coordinated dining set that also fits the area better. This fresh alfresco dining space would make anyone want to eat every meal outside.
Get creative with your outdoor patio decor. Markus has just a few stuffies so we used them to add some personality and help create a kid-friendly space. Who says you can’t combine a little whimsy with all things stylish?
Don’t be afraid to use art in your outdoor spaces. We found the seagull artwork for $40 from HomeSense and I think it’s really fun to have something on the wall even if it is outdoors. It might not last more than one season but for that price, it’s like a bouquet of flowers but better!
